Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've tried to compile 'aview-1.3.0rc1'. I've previously installed aalib 1.4 (latest as of Dec. 2006). When i ran "./configure" I got this error:
checking for AALIB - version >= 1.4.0... no
*** Could not run AALIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means AALIB was incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved AALIB since it was installed. In the latter case, you
*** may want to edit the aalib-config script: /usr/bin/aalib-config
configure: error: *** AALIB >= 1.4.0 not installed - please install first ***
I've looked at the 'config.log'. I think I'm missing 'lslang'. This is why:
configure:3161: checking for aalib-config
configure:3179: found /usr/bin/aalib-config
configure:3192: result: /usr/bin/aalib-config
configure:3200: checking for AALIB - version >= 1.4.0
configure:3290: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -I/usr/include conftest.c -L/usr/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib -la
a -lm -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 -lgpm -lslang >&5
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/3.4.6/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lslang
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
So, my question is, what does the error mean in the './configure' script output and the error in the 'config.log', and where can I get 'lslang'? I have the slackware 10.2 Disc set, so is there a pkg (*.tgz) that has 'slang'?
P.S. This was done in Slackware 10.2, Kernel 2.4.31
